This full plate contains all the 3D parts you need to build a new printrbot in one run.
This is Self Replication in its purest form !
It contains all the most recent versions of the base parts, some were replaced by enhanced versions.
Please note that this plate contains all parts to build the printrbot base. The extruder and all its accessories is on a seperate plate here : http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:30787
update 2012/12/18 : fixed a little manifold error , thanks to Pierre-Olivier Ceffis
removed the 10t pulleys from the plate. An aluminium pulley gives better print results.
update 2013/02/06 : ( V3 ) re-arranged the pieces so that pieces that tend to detach from the heatbed are pointing towards the center of the plate. It's hot & cosy there... The newest version also stays away from the corners of your build platform , to avoid bumping into clipses at the corners of your glass plate if you have one...

Please make sure that your printer is well calibrated before starting to print this plate. It uses almost the whole surface of your heatbed.
Also make sure that your heatbed is level for the same reason as above.
I rounded off the corners of the plate to stay away from the borders of the heatbed, where typically some screws are in your way.
A few tips :
- I use 4 rounds of skirt when slicing the model, that way you have plenty of time to verify if your printbed is level & the height of your extruder is constant along the whole surface of it.
- Make sure that the clamps holding the glass to the heatbed are on the outside of the white line marking the outside of your heatbed PCB. You don't want your extruder to bump into one...
- Duration of the print is 8h+ make sure that the room temperature remains +/- constant , or your parts may start to warp ( don't leave it printing overnight in a cold garage )...
Have patience, and good luck !
